​What is the Lambeth NQT Pool?

​Getting your first teaching position as a new teacher can be time consuming, confusing and even daunting.

Recognising that, and seeking to simplify the process for NQTs, Teach Lambeth have developed a new and innovative type of NQT pool.

All applicants seeking to find an NQT position in the Borough of Lambeth must apply through the NQT pool and all applicants are added to the pool - there is no pre-screening or pre-interview process.

We believe that is the fairest approach for all applicants. Every school in Lambeth can then have access to all the applicants who have joined the NQT talent pool where they can view applications, shortlist candidates and then invite for interview and school tours - all through the online NQT pool.

Of course, this means that applicants to the NQT pool are not guaranteed a teaching position in Lambeth, but being in the pool gives you better access to NQT positions in all the schools throughout the borough.

As NQT teaching positions become available, Lambeth schools will consult the NQT pool database and you will be contacted about those positions that are most suitable for you.

If you wish to apply to our NQT Pool the application process is very simple. You can upload your details by completing a full NQT Pool submission so that schools can look for applicants like you and then approach you directly through the pool and this site. You can also search and apply for posts and keep up to date with regular job alerts.

There are two stages to the NQT Pool application. Firstly, you register your interest and will be sent a pdf of information and some follow-up emails as well as creating a Teach Lambeth profile and access to the full jobs dashboard and then, secondly, you submit a full application to the NQT Pool.

Once you have completed the first step you have a profile on the Teach Lambeth website and access to your jobs dashboard where you can search for and apply for jobs using your profile, even before completing your full NQT submission.
